Completed education at Serieskolan (School of Sequential Art) in Malmö in 2011 and have since shown works in solo exhibitions in Sweden and also in group exhibitions of selected artists and graphic novelists in Sweden and internationally.
My sequential art, graphic novels and illustrations are published in anthologies and books, including my graphic novel “What We Knew” (2015) and my picture book “Ichabod Kvick and Järnbläckfisken” (2012). Awarded grants from Sveriges Författarfond (The Swedish Authors’ Fund) and Konstnärsnämnden (The Swedish Arts Grants Committee) for my sequential novel and work as an artist.
I often works with drawing as the basis for my artistic works but my practice is multidisciplinary and incorporates also three dimensional pieces such as sculpture and art installations.
In my artistry, I don’t generally seek to express or communicate a specific image or idea, or seek an understanding between myself and the viewer. The artwork is an exorcism, feelings rediscovered in a new physical form. I want my work to be a selfish experience, both for me as an artist and for the viewer.
Most important for me isn´t the concret or correct, but imagery that reflects how it feels to exist. In dreamlike works where fiction and reality meet, and the bizarre and beautiful merges, themes of symbolism, occultism, folk beliefs, animism and subconsious recur.
I'm available for exhibitions, illustrations, public art installations, comic comissions and other design or art work.

LATEST SOLO EXHIBITIONS
"With these (ref. graphic novel "Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow"), Sarah Kläpp's House of Cards appears as an unusually elaborate and thematically coherent exhibition. A very unique one, with infectious humor and fascinating darkness." (Eng. translation from exhibition review in Swedish)
"Kläpp is a skilful artist and each drawing acquires weight and poise through her sure handed linework." (Eng. translation from exhibition review in Swedish)
”In a fascinating way, the concept forms a bridge between modern man and our earliest predecessors - even to this day, there is nothing strange in picking up a special stone from the ground. It is a kind of innate craving that is hard to explain.”
